TASTING NOTES

"Fantastic aromas of blueberries, plums, bark and wet earth follow through to a full body, velvety and polished tannins and a wonderful finish. Refined and persistent on the finish. Drink in 2019 and onwards." JamesSuckling.com

"Always a crowd pleaser, the 2012 Brunello di Montalcino Montosoli is a beautifully crafted wine. It shows depth, intensity and loads of authenticity both in terms of grape variety and territory. Dark cherry and blackberry rise from the bouquet with spice, pipe tobacco and moist earth in tow. The wine is layered and nuanced. That Sangiovese authenticity comes through loud and clear on the palate. This is a mid-weight wine with polished but firm tannins and evident acidity. It shows a burst of freshness on the finish. Montosoli ages in large Slavonian oak casks for 36 months. It is fully equipped for a long aging future ahead." Monica Larner, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate #229

"This finds good equilibrium between the ripe berry, cherry, tobacco, iron and tea notes. Firm and chewy, with hints of leather and underbrush on the long aftertaste. Best from 2021 through 2035. 1,250 cases made." Wine Spectator

"A good blast of cherry-strawberry on the nose. A wine of some intensity, with firm structure and plenty of sweet, moreish fruit on the palate. Fills the mouth, intense and long. Drink from 2019." Nicolas Belfrage MW, The World of Fine Wine, Issue 56

"Good full red. Pure mineral driven aromas of raspberry and red cherry, with hints of licorice and tar. Nicely delineated and sweet with a strong raspberry quality dominating on the palate, this is more austere but very similar to the entry level wine in its aroma and flavor profile. The finish is long and offers repeating nuances of licorice and tar." Ian D'Agata, Vinous.com

"Tasted blind. Mid ruby with narrow, orange rim. Reluctant, savoury, minerally nose with only hints of raspberry and sour cherry. Energetic, tangy cherry and raspberry fruit and with crunchy, long tannins on the finish. Really unfurls aromatically on the finish." Walter Speller, JancisRobinson.com
